This is a theoretical project.
Many of us older folks live alone and ain't getting any younger. So
any home improvement to make life easier will be welcome.
I don't have to do laundry that often. Going downstairs to the
basement laundry machines is a multiple trip chore and a potential
injury hazard. Thus this idea.
Are there any regulations regarding the installation of home laundry
machines in the bathroom?
I have in mind the stacked washer dryer combo. Since I don't have
that many clothes to wash I can put the dirty laundry, as they are
created, in the washer compartment itself. This saves myself the
space needed for a laundry hamper. When there is a suitable load,
just turn the machine on. When done and dried I can hang the clothes
in a nearby closet or do my ironing with equal convenience.
Many elders are incontinent (thank god I'm not there yet) and a
washer-dryer in the bathroom makes cleanups very convenient.
I can envisage that a bathroom washer-dryer installation will also be
very suitable for people with disabilities.
